Arsenal v Brentford: What has been said?

Arsenal midfielder Martin Odegaard: “I think we’re a very, very interesting group – a lot of young players, and a lot of hungry players.

“I feel like we’re building something special here with all the players and the staff. 

“It’s really interesting what we’re trying to do and I’m happy with the situation, very happy to be part of the team and hopefully we can keep improving and get better each game. Then we’ll see where it takes us.

“It helps me to be around players in the same situation [in terms of age].

“I’ve been through a lot, even though I’m pretty young. In this team I’m not the youngest anymore and I have some experience and I can use that in a positive way, and help the other young players.
